Title: Quantum transducers: Integrating transmission lines and nanomechanical resonators via charge qubits

Abstract

We propose a mechanism to interface a transmission line resonator (TLR) with a nanomechanical resonator (NAMR) by commonly coupling them to a charge qubit, a Cooper-pair box with a controllable gate voltage. Integrated in this quantum transducer or simple quantum network, the charge qubit plays the role of a controllable quantum node coherently exchanging quantum information between the TLR and NAMR. With such an interface, a quasiclassical state of the NAMR can be created by controlling a single-mode classical current in the TLR. Alternatively, a 'Cooper pair' coherent output through the transmission line can be driven by a single-mode classical oscillation of the NAMR.
